    Is the Football Boom Over?

    Being something of a sad geek I've spent much of the last 30 odd years studying attendance figures more closely than is healthy and its becoming increasingly apparent that the boom the game has enjoyed since the late 1980's (don't believe it when people tell you that it started with Italia 90...

    Play Off Hoodoo

    Not ours, Preston's. They've now lost out in the Play Offs seven times:eek: So much for my faith in the law of averages. It clearly doesn't apply to some clubs :(

    Ashford Town (Middlesex)

    Congratulations to Ashford Town. After leading the table for so long then faltering badly, and slipping down to third place with one game left (sound familiar?) the Tangerines won 1-0 at Brackley on Saturday to leapfrog over their opponents and win promotion from the Southern League Division 1...

    The Sam Hammam School of Accounting

    Loved this qoute in the Guardian today from the man who thinks that Peter Ridsdale is a financial troubleshooter. When questioned about the rather disturbing level of Cardiff's debt, he replied " being in debt is good because it shows that people trust you enough to lend you money": I hadn't...

    How Good is the England Test Team?

    30 years as a Brentford supporter doesn't exactly incline me towards optimism but even I can't help becoming a tad excited at the potential of the England side at the moment. A top 5 all of whom average over 40 in Test cricket (or at least, Butcher does if you exclude his dodgy early spell), a...

    Gridiron back at Wembley?

    Please somebody tell me this isn't going to happen. Thousands of happy clappy youngsters and families brought up on WWF wrestling and computer gaming, all in search of 'sport lite'. Probably the most boring and pointless sport and the most empty and superficial sporting and spectating culture...

    Rugby WC - the Alternative View

    Call me Mr Grumpy if you like but there are two reasons why I can't join in the euphoria over the World Cup win. The first is minor - its simply not that much of a big deal. Of course its a fine achievement in the context of its own sport but we musn't lose sight of the fact that Rugby has a...
